The Young Women’s Trust, new Research Centre

The Young Women’s Trust, new Research Centre

Tina.Freed / 04 May 2021

We're delighted to share the Young Women's Trust, new Research Centre with our members!

The Young Women'sTrust is committed to raising young women’s voices, and their new Research Centre puts young women’s experiences at the heart of their work.

The online Centre is a home for all their research into the lives of young women, and celebrates the amazing work of their peer researchers – young women who they train to conduct interviews with other young women in their communities.

Most excitingly, they now have a gallery of brilliant videos from young women sharing their experiences and the findings of their research, which you can view here:

The first report from the Research Centre, launched last week, focuses on the missing data that makes many young women invisible. There are 5.4 million young women aged 18-30 in the UK with a range of needs, but too often a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach means there are millions of young women whose experiences go unseen and unheard

E2W and the Young Women's Trust 

In April 2019 we were introduced to the Young Women’s Trust and were amazed at the work they do to help Young Women who are struggling to live on low or no pay, to get into work that is right for them. The Young Women’s Trust offers these women support similar to that we offer you, our members. 

We are asking our community to commit to a few hours per month to review and provide advice on CV’s, assist with job applications and give support to young women who are in the process of actively applying and interviewing for new opportunities. We want to put them in a position where they have the best possible chance of success. If you would like to register as a volunteer, please contact Katie.

We will be running different initiatives over the next year to help The Young Women's Trust achieve their target to help 10,00 young women. We are asking you to become as involved as you can, by fundraising, raising awareness and donating.
